Overview:Wildwood: A Journey Through Trees - A much-loved classic of nature writing from environmentalist and the author of Waterlog, Roger Deakin, Wildwood is an exploration of the element wood in nature, our culture and our lives. 'Breathtaking, vividly written . . . reading Wildwood is an elegiac experience' Sunday Times'He writes nature as a blackbird sings, or a bird of prey rides thermals - effortlessly.' Reader Review ________________From the walnut tree at his Suffolk home, he embarks upon a quest that takes him through Britain, across Europe, to Central Asia and Australia, in search of what lies behind man's profound and enduring connection with wood and trees. Meeting woodlanders of all kinds, he lives in shacks and cabins, travels in search of the wild apple groves of Kazakhstan, goes coppicing in Suffolk, swims beneath the walnut trees of the Haut-Languedoc, and hunts bush plums with Aboriginal women in the outback. Perfect for fans of Robert Macfarlane and Colin Tudge, Roger Deakin's unmatched exploration of our relationship with trees is autobiography, history, traveller's tale and incisive work in natural history. It will take you into the heart of the woods, where we go 'to grow, learn and change. ________________'Enthralling' Will Self, New Statesman'Extraordinary . . . some of the finest naturalist writing for many years' Independent'An excellent read - lyrical and literate and full of social and historical insights of all kinds' Colin Tudge, Financial Times'Enchanting, very funny, every page carries a fascinating nugget.
